Man’s Great Fear

The cry for love that flows from the heart of people in need is mixed with pain, anguish and sometimes agony. They are so fearful of not being lovable. If this call for love awakens compassion in the hearts of those around them, their fears and anguish and inner pain can also awaken fears and inner pain in those who hear the cry. That is why it is so hard and so frightening to meet people who are inwardly broken. Their anguish seems to awaken anguish and pain in those around them.
